AMD Introduces New APUs for System Builder and DIY Market 
The AMD A10-7800 and A8-7600 APUs, Based on the Award-Winning
Graphics Core Next Architecture, Complete the Most Advanced APU
Lineup from AMD 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/14 --  AMD (NYSE: AMD) today
introduced the new AMD A10-7800 Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) to
the component channel. This 4th generation A-Series APU with 12
Compute Cores (4CPU + 8 GPU) unlocks the APU potential with
Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) features, and boasts powerful
AMD Radeon(TM) R7 Series graphics for outstanding performance across
applications. (1, 2) Combined with AMD's acclaimed Mantle API, the
AMD A10-7800 APU can enable accelerated performance across select AMD
Gaming Evolved partner titles.(3) 
Revolutionary Architecture 


 
--  Up to 12 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 8 GPU) deliver amazing performance and
    responsiveness, that leverages the capability of the APU on various
    workloads, applications and top gaming titles
--  The breakthrough new Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) allows
    the CPU and GPU to work together in harmony by quickly dividing and
    directing tasks to the appropriate cores for new levels of performance
    and efficiency for desktop and notebook PCs, enabling a new era of
    compute capabilities with compute cores
--  Award-winning Graphics Core Next Architecture with AMD Radeon(TM) R7
    series graphics and compute capability makes it a top choice for
    gamers who expect the best
--  Support for UltraHD (4K) resolutions and new video post-processing
    enhancements that make 1080p videos look amazing when upscaled on an
    UltraHD-enabled monitor or TV

  
"The AMD A-Series APUs bring a superior level of gaming and compute
experiences to the desktop PC," said Bernd Lienhard, corporate vice
president and general manager, Client Business Unit, AMD. "With
support for AMD's acclaimed Mantle API that simplifies game
optimizations for programmers and developers to unlock unprecedented
levels of gaming performance transforming the world of game
development to help bring better, faster games to the PC." 
Equipped with AMD Quick Stream, AMD Steady Video and AMD TrueAudio
technologies, the AMD A-Series APUs combine to deliver lifelike audio
and video(4). Utilizing a configurable thermal design power option
(cTDP), enthusiasts are now able to fine-tune for efficiency. In
addition, AMD also announced the introduction of the AMD A8-7600 and
AMD A6-7400K APUs, ideal for consumers looking to upgrade their
application and work experience on the PC. With the unifying FM2+
infrastructure for AMD APUs, users are enabled to build smaller form
factors for gaming and home theatre PC (HTPC) systems.
